    I have some web pages that when scanned by the google fetch now tool, shows partial results because they can't crawl some of the links on the pages, because I'm blocking those links with a robots.txt disallow rule. It's just stuff like javascript and some images.

    Will this affect SERP position? Also all pages with google adsense installed on it, also get a partial results because google blocks crawling of their site. But they may account for external vs internal blocking.

    Yes... you aren't allowed to block JavaScript or CSS. Any pages doing so will automatically suffer. I'd imagine blocking images is an issue too because it messes up the google instant preview as well.

    Yes, this will affect the ranking of your site. This is not a smart thing that to be follow.
    Google always want the site, natural. If you block the pages for the poor contents in it means try to change the content on that page with more quality.
    From your linkbuilding on that page, the inbound links are not allowed. This will harm ranking in SERP.
